Hildebrand Senior Scholars are leading authorities in their fields who work in fruitful collaboration with the Hildebrand Project on topics bringing their own interests in dialogue with Hildebrand’s unique contributions. They regularly present at our seminars, colloquia, and lend their expertise to our summer residency program.
Rocco Buttiglione is a philosopher, statesman, and leading European public intellectual. He was a beloved friend and trusted collaborator of Pope St. John Paul II, and is an authority on his philosophical anthropology. His book Karol Wojtyla: The Thought of the Man who became Pope John Paul II is a fundamental work on the pope’s early philosophy. A member of the Italian Parliament for over two decades, he serves on the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences and holds the John Paul II Chair for Philosophy and History of European Institutions at the Lateran University in Rome. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the Hildebrand Project.
John F. Crosby
Professor Crosby was himself a student of Dietrich Hildebrand. Besides writing major studies on the thought of John Henry Newman, Max Scheler, and Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, and making his own contributions to personalist philosophy, Prof. Crosby has devoted his long and distinguished academic career—first at the University of Dallas, then at the International Academy of Philosophy, and currently at Franciscan University of Steubenville—to introducing his students to the intellectual legacy of Hildebrand, and also to making Hildebrand better known in scholarly circles. Prof. Crosby was the translator of the English edition of Hildebrand’s philosophical masterpiece, The Nature of Love, and he also serves as the General Editor of all our present and future translations of Hildebrand’s works.
Professor Seifert received his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Salzburg in 1969 and, under Professor Robert Spaemann, his habilitation from the University of Munich (Privatdozent) in 1975. He studied chiefly under Balduin Schwarz, the most distinguished German former student of Dietrich von Hildebrand, at the University of Salzburg, and under Gabriel Marcel in Paris. Already as a child (from age 3 on) he knew Hildebrand personally, because Seifert’s mother had been a student of Hildebrand in Munich and both of his parents were Hildebrand’s friends. He is the author of many books, and Europe’s leading student and teacher of Hildebrand’s philosophy.
Our Associated Scholars program exists to showcase the depth, range, and versatility of young and mid-career personalist scholars, and to provide Associated Scholars with opportunities for speaking, writing, and other new collaborations, which may include:
- The Hildebrand Project’s new programs of online reading groups and university-based chapters (currently meeting online) introducing college students to personalism through guided discussions and invited lecturers.
- Opportunities to participate in grant applications, such as the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Templeton Foundation, to support new scholarship and events.
- Academic service, such as advising dissertation students, serving as peer reviewers, or vetting manuscripts for publication.

Mark K. Spencer
Dr. Mark Spencer Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of philosophy at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. Spencer fell in love with philosophy in high school when he first encountered the writings of Albert Camus and St. Thomas Aquinas. He earned his Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo, and his M.A. and B.A. from Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he first encountered the work of Dietrich von Hildebrand. He is the author of over 35 papers, mostly focusing on the nature of the human person, beauty, and God’s relations to us. In his research, he above all tries to synthesize many traditions’ approaches to these topics, drawing on the scholastic, phenomenological, analytic, and Greek Patristic traditions. Among the things he takes greatest delight in is introducing students to the insights of these traditions, so as to help them better perceive and contemplate reality, for which he finds the work of von Hildebrand an indispensable guide. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, Susanna, and their four children. Together, they especially enjoy hiking, camping, reading novels, watching films, gardening, and homeschooling.

Beth A. Rath
Beth. A. Rath is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Borromeo Seminary in Cleveland, OH. Her first formal experience with philosophy was as a teenager. She heard a lecture on Descartes, and from there she was intrigued by the sorts of questions philosophers ask. Beth went on to study philosophy and theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where she first encountered the work of St. Thomas Aquinas and personalism. There she heard a lecture by Alice von Hildebrand that changed the trajectory of her life and inspired her to pursue graduate studies in philosophy. She completed her doctorate in philosophy at Saint Louis University, with an emphasis on the nature of the human person, moral philosophy, and themes at the intersection of philosophy and theology. At Borromeo, Beth teaches a wide variety of philosophy courses to both seminarians and lay students, and she co-teaches Tolle Lege, a Catholic ‘nerd camp’ for high school seniors in the Diocese of Cleveland.

DT Sheffler is a philosopher who specializes in the history of the concept of the person. He was profoundly touched by reading Martin Buber’s I and Thou as a teenager and, a few years later, Christian personalists, especially Dietrich von Hildebrand and Karol Wojtyła. This combined with a passionate interest in Ancient philosophy and patristic thought to produce an investigation into the origins of personalism and the foundations for the insights achieved in the twentieth century. This led to doctoral work on Plato’s conception of the self and the soul as a way to understand the pre-Christian background of early Christian thought. He has also continued his research of personalism, especially the thought of Dietrich von Hildebrand and has participated in the Hildebrand Project in various ways since 2015. Dan lives in Louisville with his wife and three children where he teaches philosophy at Memoria College.

Mario Delucchi is a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the University of Dallas, where he teaches ethics and metaphysics. He likes to cast his net across philosophical paradigms, seeking ways to overcome impasses between schools and traditions (without compromising eternal verities and values.) Nevertheless, his penchant for exploring concrete human themes through the phenomenological method draws him especially to phenomenological, existentialist, and personalist thought. Here, Dietrich von Hildebrand has been a long-time companion. Mario strives to resist rigid partitions between disciplines in order to emphasize the mutually reinforcing relationship between metaphysics, ethics, and aesthetics, for the sake of that ancient trinity: the true, good, and beautiful. He also never ceases to find fulfillment in teaching, and midwifing the philosophical insights of undergraduates has proven to be a constant source of inspiration. A convert in two senses, he was introduced many years ago to Catholicism, through the sublime beauty of its music and architecture, by a close friend and mentor who also taught him how to see and think phenomenologically. For Mario, faith, reason, and a sense for the beautiful thrive together, ever since they awoke together many years ago. He currently resides with his wife Lauren in Bedford Texas.

Dr. Maria Fedoryka lectures and publishes in both academic and popular fora in the field of the philosophy of love, examining issues spanning from the centrality of love in the being of God, to its role at the center of creation, to its meaning for marriage, family, and sexuality. Having been captivated by the writings of Dietrich von Hildebrand as a teenager and deeply drawn to his phenomenological and personalist philosophy, she pursued her studies under Josef Seifert and John Crosby at the International Academy of Philosophy. Among her scholarly writings are an analysis of Dietrich von Hildebrand’s philosophy of marital intimacy and procreation titled Finis superabundant Operis: Refining an Ancient Cause for Understanding the Spousal Act in the ACPQ, and “‘God is Love’”: Personal Plurality as the Completion of Aristotle’s Notion of Substance and Love as the Absolute Ground of the Divine Being” in the Proceedings of the ACPA. Among her popular publications are the booklet The Special Gift of Women for God, the Family and the World published by the Catholic Truth Society in England. She is currently working on an article comparing Hildebrand’s and Aquinas’s philosophy of affectivity, as well as an article on Hildebrand’s theory of motivation as the key to understanding deliberate moral wrongdoing.
